Interestingly enough, all the radio news I heard, and one TV report (I think) implied he was going to jail because he had "20 handguns and 2500 rounds of ammunition." Mind you, I agree he needs to be in jail, but the news made it sound like he had illegal weapons. In reality, he illegally had weapons. Big difference.
In fact, here's the copy WFLS read:
Given WFLS is owned by the Fredericskburg Free-Lance Star (I didn't know this earlier), it's no surprise.ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - The father of a mentally disturbed teenager who shot and killed two Fairfax County police officers last year will spend more than three years in prison for illegal weapons possession. Brian Kennedy had 20 firearms and about 2,500 rounds of ammunition in his home the day his 17-year-old son opened fire on the Sully District Station.
